I’ve been married 7 years now, so while I in no way claim to be an expert on marriage, I do know a few things about making a marriage work. When we got married, Kyle and I decided that divorce was not an option, and never to even be joked about. We made a covenant with each other and with God, and we promised to stay together forever.
That said, no one’s perfect, and both partners are going to make mistakes. There is no such thing as perfect people or a perfect marriage. But it is possible to have a good marriage – even a great one. So, no, our marriage isn’t perfect. We love each other, yes, but we get in disagreements and arguments, and feelings can get hurt. Marriage can be tricky. We’ve gone from being completely independent, to a co-dependent relationship, and figuring out how to navigate that can be hard, and will look different for each couple. Two things you always want to do though are to communicate, and to forgive.
I also think that it’s the small things that you do each day that really make a marriage work. Things like sending little texts throughout the day, surprising your spouse with a candy bar you picked up while grocery shopping, taking care of an errand etc. are ways we really show our love for one another, ways we show them that they are important to us.
This past week I surprised Kyle with a wood watch. I’ve been wanting to get him a new watch for a long time, but knew he would want a quality one, so a wood watch from JORD was just the ticket! It’s perfect for him, and I’m glad I got the opportunity to give him one. However, know I’m not saying you need to go all out to surprise your spouse, or that you need to pack his lunch every single day. I’m just saying to find one small thing you can do each day to show love and appreciation for them. Cherish your spouse, make them your top priority, and you’ll see that a great marriage really is possible.
JORD Wood Watches are a really fun gift to give, because they’re so unique. I got him the Dover in zebrawood and dark sandalwood and just love it. The two-toned wood gives it such a fun look, and I love that it has a partially open face, so you can see the gears at work. JORD has a great variety of watches for men and women, so there is sure to be the perfect one or you or your giftee 😉
JORD has kindly offered to give one of my readers a $100 gift code to go towards their choice of wood watch. All you have to do is enter here. The giveaway ends May 21st, and while only one winner will receive the $100 code, all who enter will be emailed a $25 gift code after the contest ends, so really, it’s a win-win all around.
